Mary, Mike & Rich: I want to send my condolences to you all. I know this is a sad time for you, losing your last sister, but know Betty has joined her sister Jeanne and they are once again together with their God. While you were at the grave site service, I was saying my rosary for Betty. I'm sorry I didn't get to know her better. God Bless you All! Love, Nancy ❤

Betty has joined her sister, Jeanne up in Heaven. These two (2) sisters were inseparable and like two (2) peas in a pod. This family is one of the Finest examples of helping each other have a better life. It would be very difficult to find a closer knit family. These two (2) sisters leave a deep void in the Bauer family. They were Loved by a lot of people and will be sorely missed by everyone they came into contact with. GOD Bless the entire Bauer family. Sincerely, Ken

I was glad to connect again with Betty again after all these years. She and Jeannie are certainly happy together in heaven this morning. All of you were such good siblings to both of them.

Betty was a kind, caring, and loving sister. She enjoyed music and spending time with her family. The last 15 years, Betty dedicated her life to the care of our disabled sister, Jeanne, who left this world 10 months ago. The two sisters were inseparable and now are together again with the Lord. Our family would like to thank Freeburg Care Center and Family Hospice for the kind and compassionate care provided to our sister.
